Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesia Fellowship
Thank you very much for your interest in our Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesia Fellowship Program. We welcome all qualified applicants to apply for this fellowship position. Our Division, along with the Division of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, offers an excellent training program for all incoming fellows and includes perioperative management of complex and diverse cardiac as well as thoracic cases (ascending and descending aortic aneurysms repair, endoluminal stent AAA and DTAA repair, aortic dissection repair, heart and lung transplantation, ventricular assist device placement, complex pediatric cardiac surgery, valve repair and replacement, and coronary artery bypass surgery).
Our program and the Cardiology Division have set up a strong curriculum to meet the fellow’s perioperative TEE training requirements (average 10-12 weeks designated echocardiography training time). All fellows (including some of our residents) who have graduated from our program have passed the National Board of Echocardiography Perioperative TEE Exam. There are also some basic and clinical research opportunities for the fellows who are interested in developing his or her academic career in the future. Our CT anesthesia fellowship is an ACGME accredited program. Our fellowship training has included CT Anesthesia, CICU, and TEE rotations as well as elective rotations to fulfill the overall fellowship training requirement.
Our current caseload and concomitant parallel commitment toward resident education allows for us to accept two fellows per year. I strongly encourage you to apply as soon as possible. All applications must be received by April 1st, the interview process will be completed by May 30th and a decision will be published through San Francisco match. Applicants should upload their application packages onto the SF Match Website. These packages should include an application (which is on the SF Match website), a personal statement and three letters of recommendation. You can contact me, Yong G. Peng, MD, PhD., or our fellowship program coordinator, Christie McLaughlin, if you have additional questions.
